Christina Smith-Martin


PhD candidate, Department of Plant and Microbial Biology

University of Minnesota-Twin Cities

I am a student in Jennifer Powers’ lab at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Currently, I am conducting research with Tim Brodribb at the University of Tasmania, Australia. I am broadly interested in ecosystem ecology, community ecology, and mainly plant ecophysiology. My research focuses on how plants respond to environmental conditions and resource availability. In particular, I am interested in plant hydraulic strategies and how this influences the response to water availability and drought of plant communities across forest types.
